Based on the seven delightful children’s books by Crockett Johnson, HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON follows the zany adventures of an inventive young boy. HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON , part of the Act One Family Series
Enchantment Theatre Company’s production will take the audience on a wild ride as Harold jets to Mars, joins a circus, and meets a princess. Harold creates the world he wants to explore, using nothing more than a big purple crayon and his imagination. The Harold books have captivated families for more than fifty years, which is why Enchantment chose to adapt these wonderful stories to a stage production in 2009.
While HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON uses Enchantment’s signature life - size puppets,
masked actors and music, this production also adds a whole new dimension with the use of large
- scale video animation. The animations capture Harold’s purple line drawings perfectly and
help create his world of make - believe. This popular production will amaze anyone who is young at heart, from children to grandparents. Both performances will be preceded by a free iCAN interactive educational activity, provided by Wharton Center’s Inner Circle. These will take place one hour before each Act One Family Series performance.
